Illinois (about 68m, 15m high) This three castle American tanker was sunk by a German U-boat in 1917. Today the wreck lies about 30 miles south of Portland Bill on the edge of a shipping lane, upright on a hard sand/gravel/shingle seabed. She is one of the largest intact wrecks in the area, bar the torpedo damage, with a minimum depth of 55m to the decks. She is an incredible dive.
